Feminists Bash Male-Born ‘Trans Woman’ Elected Head of Women’s Group

A month after Quebec’s largest women’s rights group elected a biological male who identifies as a “woman” as president, a feminist backlash is brewing – or as much as it can brew in a province notable for its social liberalism.

Critics say “Gabrielle” Bouchard, a 49-year-old “trans woman” and gender activist, can’t speak for women because he was born a man, the National Post reported last week.

The 49-year-old Bouchard, for his part, began his presidency of Fédération des femmes du Québec in December by calling for women’s equality. The Fédération is Quebec’s largest women’s group, representing some 300 feminist groups and about 700 individual members . . .

The most notable of these are Denise Bombardier, a writer, longtime Radio Canada media personality, and columnist for the Journal de Montréal, and Diane Guilbault, who decamped from the Fédération in 2013 and started another women’s group, the Post reported . . .

She raised the question “Is a ‘trans’ woman a real woman” and asserted that transgender activists intend to “smash the reality of the two sexes to impose an appalling vision where neither man nor woman would exist any more.” (Read more from “Feminists Bash Male-Born ‘Trans Woman’ Elected Head of Women’s Group” HERE)

Absolutely Shocking: Muslim Activist Endorses ‘Chelsea Manning’ for Senate

Now that traitor Chelsea Manning has announced his candidacy for the United States Senate in Maryland (an announcement that changed the course of human history on Monday), super-American patriot Linda Sarsour has offered her endorsement, stunning those who regarded Sarsour as the iconic version of American patriotism.

Manning spent seven years in jail for his 35-year sentence for espionage and theft of classified documents, including battlefield videos and diplomatic cables from classified computer accounts . . .

Sarsour has demonstrated some American sentiments of her own: appearing onstage with Rev. Jeremiah Wright (who once infamously cried, “God damn America”) at Louis Farrakhan’s #JusticeOrElse rally in 2015; perpetuating a bizarre conspiracy theory that the underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was working with the CIA; asserting she was “hurt” by the way Saddam Hussein looked so disheveled on international television after being caught by American forces; and advocating for Sharia law.

College Students Can Report Each Other for Social Media Comments on Politics and Religion

Colleges now encourage students to become a self-governing body of secret police in the vein of Robespierre, providing places where they can report each other for saying something “offensive” on social media.

According to Reason, as many as 100 campuses have enacted “bias reporting” systems where students can report each other for so-called “bias incidents” — the sin of uttering something offensive.

The latest college to join in on this culturally Marxist trend is the Massachusetts-based Williams College, which, according to the campus website, has deemed “name-calling and stereotyping” examples of such bias. The criteria for a “bias incident” might range from outright racist comments to your standard jokes about racial stereotypes . . .

The rules fail to make any distinction between actually mocking somebody for their disability and “making comments on social media” about another person’s religious or political beliefs. It’s not clear how the rules are to be enforced, or whether uncomfortable subjects like Islamic terrorism must now be reported to the campus commissars.

The College Fix notes that Williams correctly distinguishes a “bias incident” from a hate crime. However, the reporting system is the same for both “bias” and “hate” issues; anybody who feels victimized by such an incident is encouraged to report it to either the Dean of the College, the Office of Strategic Planning and Diversity, counseling services, or even campus security.

Trump Makes Decision on Immigration Deal

President Donald Trump rejected a bipartisan deal on immigration on Wednesday, saying that it did not represent the platform he ran on when campaigning for president.

Trump criticized the immigration plan as being “‘horrible’ on border security and ‘very, very weak’ on reforms for the legal immigration system,” Reuters reported.

The deal reportedly demanded protections for “Dreamers” and fell significantly short of Republican goals of reforming the immigration system.

Even the Eyelashes Freeze: Russia Sees Minus 88.6 Degrees

Even thermometers can’t keep up with the plunging temperatures in Russia’s remote Yakutia region, which hit minus 67 degrees Celsius (minus 88.6 degrees Fahrenheit) in some areas Tuesday.

In Yakutia — a region of 1 million people about 3,300 miles (5,300 kilometers) east of Moscow — students routinely go to school even in minus 40 degrees. But school was canceled Tuesday throughout the region and police ordered parents to keep their children inside.

In the village of Oymyakon, one of the coldest inhabited places on earth, state-owned Russian television showed the mercury falling to the bottom of a thermometer that was only set up to measure down to minus 50 degrees. In 2013, Oymyakon recorded an all-time low of minus 71 degrees Celsius (minus 98 Fahrenheit). (Read more from “Even the Eyelashes Freeze: Russia Sees Minus 88.6 Degrees” HERE)

State Aims to Be ‘Sanctuary State’ for Gun Rights

. . .A West Virginia lawmaker has introduced a bill to the state House that would outlaw enforcement of current and future gun-control laws that violate the U.S. or state constitutions.

House Bill 2138, introduced by Republican Del. Pat McGeehan, would effectively nullify all federal gun control within the state’s boundaries, according to a report from the Tenth Amendment Center. The bill would make any attempt to enforce such laws a felony.

HB2138 reads:

“All current and future federal, state, and local statutes, ordinances, laws, orders, rules, and any other actions which attempt to restrict, tax, or regulate the possession, use, discharge in lawful self-defense, transportation, purchase, acquisition, sale, transfer, ownership, carrying, manufacture, or repair of firearms, firearm accessories, ammunition and their accouterments contradict the true meaning and original intent of the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States and Section twenty-two, Article III of the Constitution of the State of West Virginia. Those statutes, ordinances, laws, orders and rules which violate the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of West Virginia are invalid, and therefore, are null and void.”

McGeehan’s bill is a page out of “Federalist #46,” where Madison laid out a strategy for nixing unpopular or unconstitutional federal programs. Among Madison’s remedies was “refusal to cooperate with officers of the Union.” The West Virginia bill goes two steps further by offering legal assistance to state citizens targeted by federal agents enforcing unconstitutional gun laws, and by subjecting federal, state or local agents attempting to enforce federal gun laws to arrest, prosecution, jail and fines.

Trump Chief of Staff: Mexico Won’t Be Paying for Border

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly told Democratic congressmen Wednesday there will be no wall stretching the complete length of the 2,100-mile U.S.-Mexico border and that some of President Trump’s campaign promises on immigration were “uninformed,” according to a Washington Post report Wednesday.

Kelly also reportedly indicated that the Mexican government will not fund the planned 700 miles of wall, which is expected to cost $20 billion.

The chief of staff is said to have made the comments in a meeting with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, House Minority Whip Steny H. Hoyer, D-Md., and Rep. Judy Chu, D-Calif.

The Post said its report is based on notes from two congressmen who were in the room during the meeting and confirmed by two other lawmakers and a senior aide who were also present.

Kelly requested the meeting after being asked to do so by Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., according to the paper, which noted that Pelosi “has been in frequent contact with Kelly over the last several months and told him that the group is critical to reaching a deal” on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.

Look What’s Written on $1,000 Bonuses to Employees

The CEO of a software-development firm issued $1,000 bonuses to his employees with a notation in the memo on each check “Trump Tax Cut and Jobs Act.”

Sheldon Wolf of Tampa-based Spellex told “Fox & Friends” Wednesday morning he was inspired by news that companies such as AT&T and Bank of America were giving $1,000 bonuses to their employees.

“I wanted to do it because I’m excited about the new tax plan from Trump and the GOP, and I wanted to ‘share the wealth,’ as they say,” Wolf explained.

More than 50 companies have announced employee bonuses and/or wage increases in response to the bill’s tax cuts. Last Thursday, the nation’s largest private employer, Walmart, announced it was raising its minimum hourly wage and handing out bonuses of up to $1,000.

Wolf noted his employees are mostly “Generation Xers and Milennials” who are “not particularly into politics.” (Read more from “Look What’s Written on $1,000 Bonuses to Employees” HERE)

Media Go Mental on Trump, Have Ominous Prediction

Even after an Obama-appointed White House doctor said President Trump is in “excellent” health, mainstream media reporters – who routinely ignored and downplayed former Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s physical collapse, uncontrollable coughing fits and self-reported memory failure – have declared open season on the president’s health, claiming the physician must be lying about it.

The White House press corps lobbed more than a dozen questions at Navy Rear Adm. Dr. Ronny Jackson on Tuesday, many suggesting President Trump is mentally ill or exhibiting symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease. Jackson insisted Trump is in great health and received a perfect score, 30 out of 30, on a cognitive exam the president personally requested . . .

Maggie Haberman of the New York Times suggested Jackson “may have arbitrarily made Trump one inch taller so that he would not have an obese body mass index.” She tweeted: “Remember that earlier physicals decades ago put Trump at 6-2. This physical has him at 6-3. It makes a difference on his BMI from overweight to obese.” . . .

CNN went so far as to diagnose President Trump with “heart disease” Wednesday, predicting he will have a heart attack in three to five years . . .

During the campaign, the mainstream media called reports of Hillary’s declining state “conspiracy theories” and even demanded news outlets stop talking about the issue. (Read more from “Media Go Mental on Trump, Have Ominous Prediction” HERE)

Insider: Facebook Is a ‘Living, Breathing Crime Scene’

By NBC News. With more than 2 billion users, Facebook’s reach now rivals that of Christianity and exceeds that of Islam. However, the network’s laser focus on profits and user growth has come at the expense of its users, according to one former Facebook manager who is now speaking out against the social platform.

“One of the things that I saw consistently as part of my job was the company just continuously prioritized user growth and making money over protecting users,” the ex-manager, Sandy Parakilas, who worked at Facebook for 16 months, starting in 2011, told NBC News. During his tenure at Facebook, Parakilas led third-party advertising, privacy and policy compliance on Facebook’s app platform.

As Facebook transitioned from a Harvard dorm-room project into one of the world’s most valuable companies, its power grew in ways that founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg never could have anticipate . . .

(Editor’s note: the theory that Facebook is responsible for Trump’s presidential win is now motivating the social media giant’s war against conservative posts. In the last several months, Facebook has eliminated Restoring Liberty’s posts from tens of thousands of followers’ feeds. Since the 2016 election, Restoring Liberty’s reach on Facebook has been unilaterally cut by Facebook by a whopping 90%. See the story below on how other conservatives are handling this censorship.)

Over the past 14 months, Zuckerberg has gone from saying it was “crazy” to think Facebook could influence an election to vowing that 2018 is the year he will “fix” Facebook. . .

“Facebook is a living, breathing crime scene for what happened in the 2016 election — and only they have full access to what happened,” said Tristan Harris, a former design ethicist at Google. His work centers on how technology can ethically steer the thoughts and actions of the masses on social media and he’s been called “the closest thing Silicon Valley has to a conscience” by The Atlantic magazine.

What Conservatives Need to Understand About Facebook

By Fox News. “Todd, how come I never see your stories in my Facebook news feed?”

I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve received such a question from readers. They “like” our Facebook page and they “follow” our Facebook page – but for whatever reason, conservative content never makes it to their newsfeed . . .

But I write for conservative patriots and I want conservative patriots to be able to read my writings. So how do we make that happen in the age of Facebook and Instagram and Twitter and Snapchat?

Well, we’re going “old-school.” We’re going to provide you a weekly newsletter. The newsletter will include links to every one of my stories and radio commentaries. And best of all – it’s free and we promise not to share your email address or spam you. If you register for our newsletter, you will receive one newsletter a week — that’s it.

Facebook has been a very unfriendly territory for conservatives and especially conservative Christians. I have documented countless instances of censorship, from Chicks-on-the-Right to Catholic organizations. (Read more from “What Conservatives Need to Understand About Facebook” HERE)
